V5I: Progressive Drop Python Script

Saturday, June 17th, 2006

I wanted to create a heap of objects for a picture today but Vue’s drop puts all the selected objects on the same level. I could have selected and dropped each one by hand but that would have been laborious and I was feeling lazy so I created a Python script to do the hard […]

Memorable Characters the M&S Way

Friday, June 16th, 2006

A little idea for creating memorable characters that came to me while watching TV. Describe what makes your character stand out from the ordinary in the style of a Marks & Spencers advert.
